Man gets year in burglary case
A Hagerstown man serving an 11-year prison term for drug distribution was sentenced to an additional year and a day Monday for burglarizing a woman's home.
Thomas Clifford Wallace, 30, formerly of the first block of East Franklin Street, asked Washington County Circuit Judge Kennedy Boone to recommend Patuxent Institution so he could get treatment for a drug problem.
"I was hallucinating that day," Wallace said. "The police took me to the hospital."
The victim told Hagerstown City Police that the man who rushed into her home in the 200 block of East Franklin Street last July 26 at 6:22 a.m. told her he was being chased by people trying to rob him.
